The Songs of Nick Drake has been a labour of love project for Luke Jackson for the last fifteen years. Luke was friends with Nick’s string arranger Robert Kirby, working together on one of Luke’s albums before Kirby’s untimely death in 2009. Luke performed at Kirby’s memorial concert in London and is one of a handful of people to be entrusted with his legendary string arrangements for the songs from Nick’s albums Five Leaves Left and Bryter Layter.

The show toured Ontario and Quebec in 2012, garnering ecstatic reviews everywhere it went, and it has since played in Toronto at Trinity St. Paul’s, The Bathurst Street Theatre and The Church Of The Holy Trinity.

Featured performers include: Patricia O’Callaghan, David Celia, Elizabeth Shepherd, Marla, Mitch Girio, Lisa Boudreau (Lost and Profound) and more to be confirmed. The rhythm section is the superlative pairing of drummer Mark Mariash and bassist Maury Lafoy. The string quartet includes well known Toronto players Sahra Featherstone, Wendy Solomon, Johann Lotter and Alex Cheung.

Last fall The Songs of Nick Drake night sold out at Hugh’s Room Live leaving many folks unable to attend – so we’ve added a second night.
